A Graceful Transition Of Color and Light

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A graceful transition of color and light touches each trail within our Forest in Hot Springs National Park.  A tiny Prairie Lizard warms itself on a Rock below the changing autumn Leaves, further up North Mountain a Monarch Butterfly tastes the nectar of a purple Aster.  A familiar family of deer  crosses our path as we near the end of our journey.

Delicate Hues Paint Leaves, Fungus and Wildflowers

Autumn has arrived painting the Forest with color changing leaves, wildflowers and Fungus.  A Whitetail Doe watches from a slowing fading camouflage of greenery.  The rich green of summer has begun to give way to red, orange and gold.

Wildflowers and Whitetail Deer

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The trails in Hot Springs National Park are decorated in purple and gold with the arrival of late summer Wildflowers.  Glorious Aster and Goldenrod reach up from a Forest floor covered in dried Leaves from years past.  Humidity blankets the valley casting glimmering blue light across the Zig Zag and Ouachita Mountains.

A Whitetail Doe takes care to shield her fawns from passing hikers.  She kindly steps out from the brush when we are alone and allows me to capture her beauty.  Her summer coat is shedding to make way for the new growth she will need for the upcoming colder weather.  It is a joy to have seen her as a young adult, pregnant and now a Mother.

Soft Light of Morning Reveals Tiny Beings

Morning has my favorite photography magic hour. Luckily in the Hot Springs National Park it generally lasts longer than 60 minutes depending on which mountain we are hiking.  The small mammals, insects and birds love the magical light too!

Love to ALL!
